As a result, the first stop on this day is Ifrane. This town is unlike any other in the world. It is distinguished by similar housing styles and a Swiss-like ambiance. After that, we go to Azrou village’s Cedar Forest. It’s a jungle full with apes and other endangered species. These gentle apes allow you to enjoy their freedom here. Second, you’ll go to Midelt, where we’ll enjoy a traditional lunch. We travel from this town to another significant spot for a spectacular panoramic vista. Ziz Valley is home to a variety of date fruits as well as adobe buildings.

Day 3: Merzouga, Todra Gorges, Rose Valley, and Ouarzazate on
Watching the dawn from the top of the dune is a must-do activity. You get up early to see the dawn, take a nice shower, and have breakfast. Then you ride your camels back to Merzouga to continue your 7 days desert trip from Fes to Marrakech. The first stop is a typical market in Rissani, which smells of various spices. On the route to Touroug village and Tinghir town, the trip also includes a stop at a historic irrigation system. Another opportunity to experience a canyon that runs between towering rocks at 300 meters may be found in this town. In Morocco, it is also a popular rock climbing site. Second, we go to the Dades Valley and the Rock Formation. Following that, the trip stops at Rose Valley to learn about rose products and the Rose Festival.

Ouarzazate, Ait Ben Haddou, Taroudant, and Agadir on Day 4
The ideal filming settings are Ouarzazate and Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah. That is to say, many well-known films were shot in these locations. Gladiator from 2000, the Kingdom of Heaven from 2005, and more films are examples. So, after breakfast in Riad, we go to Ait Ben Haddou and spend ample time in this UNESCO Kasbah. Our excursion then continues to Tiliouine, the Saffron town. We visit the Saffron Cooperative and enjoy the saffron field. In addition, we go to Taroudant.

On the tops of the Argan trees, for example, you can observe “the flaying Goats.” They climb these trees to consume the fresh nuts that fall to the ground. Regardless, we go to an Argan oil cooperative to learn more about Argan cosmetics. Once we get in Essaouira, you will go through Medina’s arts and ramparts.

Fez, Morocco, is known for its old walled city, which has been compared to Jerusalem by many. It dates back to the 8th century and is the earliest of Morocco’s imperial cities. It is also a forerunner in Muslim worship in the nation and home to one of the world’s oldest colleges. Fes, as it is often called, is a particularly beautiful city with a vibrant and important culture as a result of all of these firsts. It is famous for being Morocco’s cultural and spiritual capital, as well as a hub of art and science.
Fes is one of the country’s most unique and appealing places, albeit eclipsed by Casablanca, Marrakech, and Rabat, the country’s major towns. Fes has managed to adapt to contemporary life while maintaining its traditions and one of Morocco’s most genuine lifestyles, which can be felt in each of its streets.
We may meander through its winding lanes and get lost in the wonderful architectural marvels that are seamlessly incorporated into the city’s everyday life. Its adobe and brick walls, courtyards of various heights, tile-covered pillars, and other features distinguish it.
Despite the fact that the medina is Fez’s “human marvel,” it is not the only one. The city’s blue, a cobalt hue that stands as a symbol of the pottery of this Moroccan city, where some of the country’s most magnificent pieces of pottery are created or have been produced, is a peculiar draw. Its enigmatic aura is enhanced by its convoluted alleyways and magnificence.
Fez, Morocco, is the result of the merger of three cities on the banks of the Fez and Zitu rivers.
